What is an Air Source Heat Pump?
ASHP’s are a renewable energy source that uses the air outside to heat your home, even in cold weather. ASHP’s are a direct replacement for traditional gas and oil boilers, using natural energy sources in contrast to finite fossil fuels.
An effectively installed ASHP can transfer three to four times more energy into your home than it uses. Because of this, ASHPs are incredibly efficient, so many homeowners are turning to ASHPs to heat their homes.
How do they work?
An ASHP works by extracting heat from outside and delivering it as warm water and heating. It achieves this by behaving as a refrigeration system, but in reverse.
Air source heat pumps consist of four key components.
- Expansion Valve
The refrigerant absorbs heat from the air, evaporates, and passes through to the compressor. The compressor increases the pressure and temperature of the refrigerant to the condenser. In turn, the condenser condenses the gas back to a liquid state and, in doing so, creates heat.
